[easy-image-collage id=636] What is the best cure for June Gloom? A cute, furry jacket.
Every year in June it gets foggy and gloomy in LA and it's like the weather is changing in the wrong direction. So a furry jacket is the best way to cheer yourself up!
It's always hard to dress in this weather because the sun is really hot, but the mornings and evenings are freezing. There's also a lot of fog which sucks for your hair...not mine though :P
Last week I was working in Mandeville Canyon and it was so foggy you couldn't see your hand in front of your face! I really wished I was wearing this outfit then.
I love this little furry guy! Don't worry, it's not real. I mean, sometimes people ask me if its my cat, but obvi, it's not.
It's a Mink Pink cocktail jacket. Which why it is so short. It's meant to imitate the furs women wear with evening gowns that reach just to the waist.
It's not exactly a summer staple, but does come in handy around this time of year when it gets cold and cloudy for some reason.
Since these jackets aren't real fur, its important to get a good-quality one. Because after a lot of wear it will start to pill and become matted. I know we've all seen jackets that look like that.
I've had this one for a while, and wear it a lot and it is seriously the warmest jacket I have. It also kept its quality throughout the years. It might seem a little childish or not very grown up, but there's something about it that makes me feel all cute and fuzzy.
I have to be careful not to overdo it because this style CAN look a little trashy if it's done with too high heels, or the wrong bottom..but hopefully I haven't done that ;)
